Pop Quiz #476 pt. 2

Short and sweet, the answer to the pop quiz came from Girl From Auntie who knows me too well. Yes, I would wrap a dog in saran wrap (pt.2) -pallet wrap is preferred- to make a pattern from its body. Less controversial dog measuring methods were proposed in the forum. Saran wrap is useful to make patterns for a lot of things and it won’t stick to objects like duct tape will. I can’t think of a better or faster way to make a first pattern for an oddly shaped item -say a camera case- than that.

    Just for grins, I experimented with saran wrap on the dog (100 lbs of labrador love) — he wasn’t having any part of it. He would stand to be draped in heavy interfacing, though. I used duct tape instead of pins, though, as the back end of the dog wiggles a fair amount with any tail action.

    On the other hand, our pudgiest cat did allow at least a couple of layers of saran before she decided enough of that, she needed to get back to sleep.
    It’s the natural perversity of cats in action.

    If it is not too much of an inconvenience, please advise your staff to notate in their respective journals that I have a distinct dislike of being contradicted and that nothing less than their full cooperation will be anticipated in the future. Thank you.
